Database Design

JV Host also offers database design.  We're often asked, why do I need a database?  

Let's begin with a simple definition of a database - it's a place to store your valuable pieces of data such as customers, demographics, sales, inventory, etc.

There are two main reasons for building a database - user interface, and reporting. If you can make it easier and quicker for the users to enter your data, there is a much greater chance that they will use it.  The more they use it, the more you start to see in reports, which is the ultimate goal of a proper database. Reports in the end, if pulled properly, and with the properly formatted data, allows management to make more accurate business decisions. Decisions can range from strategic marketing to inventory purchases.
